That monk is 60 years old. Even that monk joined the monkhood at his age of 5, nearly 55 years of sufferings for that monk and the people around HIM.
Why should we robe the Fox, Wolf etc, and expect them to behave like Cow?
Because of that Monk Recruitment System, we all end up with Sad Stories. That System must be changed.
there is no monk recruitment system, it is voluntary.

Children don't have a voice to refuse; Parents (eternally) thinks sending their children to Monkhood is their Key to Heaven.

Who suffers? The parents or the Children!

Religion blinds their Brain, Mind and Knowledge.

No, your blind, stupid and evil.

Children have no say when they are sent to school or what they are taught, for a parent to send their child as a monk/nun is fine, similar to sending kids to a boarding school. However, parents should protect their kids and make sure the monastics/teachers are actually sincere and good. This is the ancient gurukul system.

Monastaries teach self control, ethics and developing your mind and when old enough he can decide to return to laylife, or remain a monk.

"I teach about dukkha (suffering, stress, dissatisfaction, etc) and its cessation. And if others insult, abuse, taunt, bother, and harass the Tathagata for that, he feels no hatred, no resentment, no dissatisfaction of heart because of that. And if others honor, respect, revere, and venerate the Tathagata for that, he feels no joy, no happiness, no elation of heart because of that. And if others honor, respect, revere, and venerate the Tathagata for that, he thinks,'They do me such service at this that has already been comprehended.'" - MN 22

In 1989, I wrote this simple knowledge: it is nearly 22 years passed on.

Peace/Happiness within:
Understand, Accept and Respect myself as I am.

Peace/Happiness around:
Understand, Accept and Respect others as they are.

Those 3 key words Understand, Accept and Respect brings all the joy in the world.

You are evil and a liar. If you did respect everyone, you would not be making false accusations against innocent people.
